A Marti Crespi last-gasp goal helped East Bengal beat Tiddim Road Athletic Union (TRAU) FC 2-1 to stretch their winning run to two games in an I-League encounter here on Saturday.

Marcos Jimenez De La Espada handed East Bengal the lead in the 17th minute but Deepak Devrani equalised in the 45th minute.

Crespi then netted the winner in the 89th minute to seal full points for the hosts.

East Bengal had thrashed Neroca FC 4-1 in their last match. The red and golds missed star midfielder Jaime Santos who was suspended and replaced by Ronaldo Oliveira in the starting XI.

TRAU, on the other hand, were humbled by Mohun Bagan 0-4 in their last outing. East Bengal's Samad Ali Mallick came close to breaking the deadlock in the eighth minute but his shot from a distance found the crossbar and went out.

Jimenez then broke the deadlock in the 17th minute from Samad Ali's cross. At the stroke of halftime, the visitors restored parity.

Phalguni Singh's effort from Wahengbam Luwang's low free kick found Devrani who deflected the ball inside the net.

TRAU tried to protect their lead in the second period before Menendez made a double substitution by introducing Abhijeet Sarkar and Bidyasagar Singh in place of Pintu Mahata and Ronaldo Oliveira to change the course of the tie.

Against the run of play, Crespi scored the winner from Marcos Jimenez's pass.

East Bengal moved to the top of the league table with eight points from four matches while TRAU remained at the bottom in the standings.
